1 Sale a Day has the Refurbished Google Nexus 7 Android Tablet (8GB) available for $139.99 with free shipping.
Note: I [Sean] own a 16GB Google Nexus 7 that I use every day. I use it to keep up with social media, read up on current events, shop on eBay, and control my Roku Streaming Media Player all from the comfort of my sofa.
The device is also great for showing loved ones (or clients) your photography - the 7" screen showcases your photos better than the average smartphone. And with the ability to store media content in the cloud (Google Music, for example), 8GBs of storage goes quite a bit farther than it used to.

AdoramaTV has published a couple of really good "photo deconstructions" by world-renowned photographer Joe McNally. McNally primarily uses Nikon Speedlights in his work, but the concepts apply to photographers using Canon gear as well.
From AdoramaTV:
Mimic Big Natural Light With a Speedlight for Environmental Portraits
In this episode of Photo on the Go, prepared exclusively for AdoramaTV, JoeMcNally explains how you can take a small speedlight and turn it into natural-looking daylight. He'll show you how he created the light in a scene using small flash units and made it look like it was natural daylight streaming through a window. Using this technique you can shoot more dramatic environmental portraits.

Tools Used:

The Secret to Shooting Dramatic Flash-Lit Portrait Photography That Looks Like Natural Daylight
In this episode of Photo On The Go, shot exclusively for AdoramaTV, Joe McNally explains how to create natural looking daylight through a window by bringing in light from two different directions. He explains how he sets up the light to mimic the look of diffused daylight using Nikon Speedlights while lighting details in shadows that might fall on a face if the subject is wearing a wide-rimmed hat. Watch as he shows where he places his light sources to capture all the details of two subjects with a moody midwestern flavor.
